Description

They even plan a family reunion but Lucy finds out Phin already hit the road as soon as he found out their intention. I’ve been craving to read the sequel to THE FAMILY UPSTAIRS ever since I finished it, and Lisa Jewell hasn’t let me or her millions of fans down. It was indicated in the previous book that Lucy was not a suspect in his murder and the case was closed. I really enjoyed the police investigation sections and thought those new characters were a fantastic addition.

The short chapters where DCI Owusu updates the investigation into the death of Birdie are simply headed “Samuel” at the beginning of each chapter. It was such a great book written with different timelines so you go back and forth in time quite a lot to different characters.Toward the end of the novel, Henry “recalibrates” Birdie’s murder just as he reimagined his parents’ murder and his own identity many years ago. This book is very character-driven, but also provides the mystery and suspense that you've come to love with Lisa Jewell novels.

Henry is adamant about finding Phin and following certain leads ends up in Chicago, temporarily severing contact with his sister and her kids who, however, track him down and promptly follow him to the Windy City. The characters are complex, as we expect them to be; the plot twisty and compelling; the denouement just perfect. A black bin liner full of old bones found on the banks of the Thames leads the police back to the Lamb family. This is the sequel to Lisa Jewell's chilling The Family Upstairs, a top notch multilayered and intricate psychological thriller with its old and new characters. As I listened to the audiobook of The Family Remains, I was drawn into this perfectly plotted suspense/mystery.I was going to give it a generous three stars because I was caught up in the drama of it all, but then Lisa Jewell said HOLD MY BEER and this story nosedived into one-star territory at the speed of light.
